I ran it on my old laptop as a free OS until the laptop died and I found it fine but the interface is so touch orientated that I found it annoying to use with a mouse.


I wouldn't use it for for gaming. The driver support will be limited. there is a beta AMD/ATI driver out. not sure about nvidia. I think the performance and stability would be suspect at this stage.


II installed Oraclevirtual box and then installed windows 8 in a VM to try on my desktop. I've uninstalled it. i think it ould be a great tablet/phone OS but a lousy desktop one .
